People, in Victor Meldrew's view, were created to annoy him. And Victor annoys them too, provoking them to extremes. Sharing the misery, nightmares and confusion are his long-suffering wife Margaret (she'll never forget the day she found Victor buried up to his neck with a flowerpot over his head), friend Mrs. Warboys (she'll never forget that country walk with her foot cemented to Victor's), and neighbors Mr. Swainey and his bedridden mother Pippa (she'll never forget the pile of radioactive manure on her drive) and Patrick (who will never forget the hideous experience of having a crab surgically removed from his genitals).
This two disc collection includes all seven episodes from Season 4 of One Foot in the Grave!
Victor and Margaret Meldrew (Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie) are recently retired upper-middle-class folks who have yet to actually settle down. If anything, retirement has brought them more headaches than the working world ever did. These problems are propelled mainly by Victor's constant gripes at the world around him, which bloom into full-blown debacles, especially when neighbors Patrick (Angus Deayton) and Pippa Trench (Janine Duvitski) become involved. This release includes every episode from the fourth season of this sidesplitting British sitcom.

On 4th January 1990, BBC1 in the UK screened the first episode of a sitcom that would go on to exceed all expectations. Producing some forty four episodes in total and spanning ten years on television, One Foot In The Grave is widely regarded as a milestone series of British television comedy...One Foot In The Grave was written with dark humour and biting sarcasm by David Renwick. David's impressive writing credits include The Two Ronnies, Not the Nine O'Clock News, The Kenny Everett Television Show and Jonathan Creek...Over the ten year running period of the series more regular cast members were introduced and many special guest appearances were made...The series also spawned a famous catchphrase that would be widely known by devotees of the sitcom. In fact, actor Richard Wilson is still haunted by the words wherever he goes in Britain...The premise of One Foot In The Grave is quite simple and seemingly rather common. Many of us will relate some of the characters in the series to people we know in everyday life. This is perhaps one of the qualities that made One Foot In The Grave such an enduring and respected sitcom.
